. indiana, kevin on our line for independents. go ahead. caller: my name is kevin and i'm 17 years old. and i'm not really educated as much as other people are on the programming. but one thing i do know, that the constitution it was ratified in 1789 to provide a framework for the governing nation composed of 13 separate sovereign states. and now there's over 50 states and so many laws have changed that it's just, i think it's so easy to mask things. like with oil, anything. you can mask it with paperwork. host: even as a 17-year-old there in indiana talk to us about how the significance of the constitution in your daily life. caller: well, i like the second amendment, because i like to hunt and i do believe in the right to bear arms. and another thing is that i'm an independent contractor so i pretty much, i want to be my own business owner and i love the fact that i can do that in the united states. that's honestly, i love the freedoms that we have here. i just think that a lot of the things in the constitution are masked. i don't know. host: thanks for your call. in this morning's n
indiana is waiting here. but just a few minutes to speak to it, if i may. the senator from texas has introduced an amendment that really takes an unprecedented step here in the senate, and that is the step of actually requiring the president by mandate with respect to one weapons system, one singular amendment to sell a specific weapon to another country. specifically, the senator wants to take the unprecedented step of requiring the president of the united states to sell 66 new f-16 fighter aircraft to taiwan. now, the amendment mandates the sale of these new aircraft despite the fact that just yesterday, the president and the administration notified the congress of their intention to provide taiwan with nearly nearly $6 billion additional in goods and services on top of money that they have already provided to taiwan, including, mr. president, upgrades to taiwan's current fleet of 145 f-16's. now, i will stand by my record of 26-plus years here of voting for the appropriate defense relationship with respect to taiwan and china, and we have always respected the taiwan relations act,
see some of the high clouds coming in now. showers well to the west in ohio and into indiana, michigan and down to texas, actually. we'll look at that in a moment. a lot of moisture that wants to kind of move toward us. mid-50s in gaithersburg. 40s in oakland. 60 down in richmond. locally, we've got 56 from lovettsville, haymarket is 58. laytonsville to laurel at 55 degrees. springfield to alexandria is 60. andrews, 50. even in prince frederick this morning, a report of 60 degrees. a little bit will do. dew point 54 degrees. we're looking good windwise east-northeast at 7. the chill toward friday, if you remember the weekend, we're talking about 20s in wisconsin. now they're in the 50s. detroit and chicago in the low to mid-40s. now they're in the low to mid- 60s. the chill is in northern maine. we won't have any of the really cool nights. looking at lots of 60s as the cloud and moisture increase. this goes down to texas. all of the showers, mississippi valley, up through the great lakes, they're all moving east and the flow of moisture is moving east. this is not a situation like le
and indiana required you to show a photo i.d. to cast a ballot. republicans in five more states including wisconsin passed laws saying you can't vote unless you show i.d. you did not used to have to show and frankly not all people have. across the nation elected republicans are been hard at work making it harder to vote wherever they can, however they can. republicans in maine, for example, this year passed a law ending same day registration in the state. mainers can no longer register and vote on the same day as they have been able to since the early '70s. today, a maine group that's working to get same-day registration back pointed out that governor la page, himself and nine other elected maine republicans themselves registered to vote immediately before elections. the thing they just made illegal. saying it somehow made maine's elections unsafe. it's not fit for others and has to be outlawed but it's okay for them? in south carolina, nikki haley signed a law making it harder to vote in south carolina. 200,000 people in her state, 200,000 south carolinians do not have the photo i.d. tha

. notre dame's home game in indiana was delayed nearly three hours. and fans were evacuated from the stadium twice because of heavy rain and lightning. and university of michigan's game against western michigan was stopped late in the third quarter because of lightning. and it never resumed. michigan, by the way, keeping score, won that game. >>> finally, it seems that movie stars are never out of the spotlight. but just ask crystal the monkey. the primate star of "night at the museum," and "the hangover part 2," was spotted on a flight from l.a. to newark yesterday. the 17-year-old female monkey smiled for her fans and posed for pictures. how about that? i did a little research. and i could not find an faa regulation that says you cannot let a monkey buy a ticket and fly on a plane. >> ron asked his producer, why is this monkey sitting in first class? >> as far as we know, she was in coach. you know? a beer. >> low-key. incognito. >>> let's check the weather. we're going back to scott padgett, from our miami station, local 10, wplg, also known as tropical storm lee. >> thanks so
in indianapolis, indiana. that is because the humidity is so high there. so for friday, a touch of humidity. saturday and sunday, a lot of it. a little weak disturbance coming through the area receipt now, so that's producing showers we have had, running all the way down to the south. it will be over the early part of the day tomorrow. a few showers midday, and then sunshine for the afternoon on your friday. we're watching not only katia, but we're also watching this area of disturbed weather in the gulf of mexico. it may become a tropical depression and it may also become tropical storm lee, which is interesting, because by the time we get to sunday, second half of our labor day weekend and monday, that storm system, its moisture to get entrained ahead of a cold front, and you might notice not only humidity, but more of a tropical feel to the air for the second half of the weekend. and the latest on tropical storm katia. its winds, well, down under 75 miles per hour. so it's now a tropical storm. watch its movement toward the leeward islands. sunday, by noontime, then a category 3 as it is
's got a lot of flexibility there. he could lose florida. he could lose indiana. don't think people know that's in play. he could lose north carolina, virginia. he'd still get past 270 electoral votes. >> where are the areas in florida where you think the president could gain ground? certainly in the polling we were looking at in florida about rick perry, for example, and the social security issues, it looks like the president -- certainly if rick perry's the nominee would be able to gain ground on the social security issue in florida. is there anything else he could do there? >> you know, elections in florida really are won in the middle. and it's the i-4 corridor from st. petersburg to daytona, which is really the swing voter area of florida. and that's really where obama's in trouble. those approval ratings among independent and swing voters are just as bad as they are among overall. so he's got a lot of work to do in that range. there's sort of a myth from 2008 that he won with a really hyped-up base and an excited base. he really won because he won independents. he won independents
. this indiana teacher has visited twice, bringing fellow educators this time, her high schoolers on a previous trip. >> statistics are wonderful and necessary, but until you put a face with that situation it doesn't become as powerful. that's why i like to bring my students. >> reporter: terry otis was seeing the memorial for the first time. >> it hits me really strong. we were at school the day of 9/11 and we felt the sadnesses and everything. but when you're here, you see it it. you see the picture s of the people. yeah, it's like it just p hap n happened yesterday. that feeling of hurt will never go away, what they did to us. >> reporter: as reagan national airplanes take off and land overhead, others can't help but imagine what the victims on flight 77 and the others endured. >> you think you're just on a flight, doing your normal everyday life, then boom. i cannot imagine the fear and the panic and yet the courage -- you know all the stories that have come out. >> reporter: michelle hidenberger was the lead flight attend onten flight 77. her widow ran the fund raising, he bikes here ofte
% and 55% of the vote. took big hits. arizona, georgia, north carolina, indiana, florida and ohio, also saw median income drop more than 5%. some close to 9%. that's unheard of. that means people are feeling the pain every day. the same states that saw more than 100,000 jobs lost since 2008. if the president asks what reagan asked, are you better off than you were four years ago? he'd get a resounding no from his battlegrounds. >> right. basically you see the two kind of polls of pain, really. the states that the traditional manufacturing states that were losing ground anyway, michigan, ohio, indiana in particular. illinois lost a lot of jobs. also what had been the high fliers in the past decades. the states that were booming along with the real estate boom, like florida, arizona, georgia. arizona, georgia state, hopes to put in play in 2012. florida, north carolina, nevada, states he didn't win in 2008 that moved into his camp and democrat graphically are positive for him. so you've got this, you know, two polls of states that are suffering the most. now, you know, this doesn't mean the p

. at this time i'm pleased to yield two minutes to a member of the committee, the gentleman from indiana, mr. rokita. mr. rokita: thank you and i thank the gentleman for yielding some time. i rise to give my strong support to this measure. this straightforward legislation before us today prohibits the national lab relations board from dictating what private businesses can and cannot locate jobs in america. mr. speaker, let me say that again. this straightforward legislation before us today prohibits the nlrb from dictating where private businesses can and cannot locate jobs in the united states. it's almost a bizarre situation that we're in. an american company wants to provide american jobs in america and we have an agency of this administration trying to prohibit that. because of recent overreach by the nlrb we unfortunately need to have this legislation, mr. speaker. businesses who want to hire americans in america ought to be able to do so. for americans wondering why jobs are going overseas, it's because there are too many regulations and too many bizarre regulations that are forcing co
in indiana. three years before that. here's the thing they went to extreme length to get consent. so the question is, why didn't they get consent from the subjects in guatemala. the commission found the double standard shocking. a civilization can be judged by the way it treats most vulnerable individuals. it is our moral responsibility to care for those who cannot protect themselves and clearly in this dark chapter of our medical history, we grievously failed to keep that covenants. the commission is focusing on reviewing current ethics stan darz on how effectively we now protect human research subjects. that report will be given to the president we're told in december. >>> coming up, some of these victims are accusing the pope of crimes against humanity. the pope, yes, the group says the catholic leader is turning a blind eye. our experts weigh in next. whoa! hey!

or wherever, but you're dealing with people who might be in indiana or somewhere else in this country. how you deal with it? we're learning as we go. we have to increase our communications with the islamic communities in this country. some places, john, i think in your city, you have done quite an excellent job of the nypd developing contacts with the islamic communities in new york city. in mind state of indiana, we have islamic groups and i do not think we have done nearly as good a job as new york city has done, but smaller in scope. what this problem is very local. it means you have to have contact with the leaders of the islamic communities who are the people who can identify suspected radicals within their community. it is a problem that the federal government clearly has to deal with and be helpful on. but the real action is that the state and local levels to identify the people and try to head the mob. in chapter 12 of the commission's report is on the whole question of what to do about islam and the foreign policy measures which are largely ignored in their reporting on the report. bu
worse. this was a study done by columbia university and indiana university, i think. it is not totally getting worse, but it is in some places. i think that because people are learning, and we are telling them that it is like any other illness and it is a disorder of the brain, and then they are afraid of a brain disorder. so we are trying to decide on how to pitch a stigma, and the journalists educating people and writing balanced reports are very helpful in that, but i long for the day when everybody except mental illness as a disease like any other. whennk that's -- that somebody with a mental illness goes to the doctor, and they are diagnosed, that almost always leave without hope for a better life, and i believe that is changing a little bit. i think they have always been told they will have to live with it and maybe they can control it with medication or something, but i think that is beginning to change a little bit. now we know that recovery is possible. mental health treatment is beginning to be, instead of just controlling, moving toward the strength that people have and givi

wisconsin, ohio, indiana. this legislation represents yet another front in the majority's ideological assault against workers' rights across the country. i represent a community with a right to organize was hard won, at the dress shop where my mother sewed collars for pennies, at the gun factories, the aerospace industry, the government offices, and the great universities of my state. the families of my district know from hard-won experience that labor unions fight for employee rights, higher standards, greater equality, security in work and retirement. they help ensure that workplaces and politics are driven by the dreams and the aspirations of working people, not by corporate power and the narrow agenda of the elites. unions were instrumental in forming the broad based middle class in this country, and thanks to decades of systematic efforts to guide their rights, as well as misguided trickle-down policy that never do trickle down. union membership has fallen in our country. middle class workers have been squeezed. their wages have stagnated, their benefits cut, their job security w
